July 14, 2015 Exodus 2:1-15a; Matthew 11:20-24
Indifference calls forth rebuke and warning from Jesus.
While Jesus was performing miracles … people were amazed … they were dazzled and curious. They allowed the wonder to fizzle though … and Jesus rebukes them for their failure to believe in the uniqueness of His good works.
They were hard of heart … and neither Jesus’ preaching … nor His good works could penetrate and soften their hearts to respond appropriately. God showed Himself to these people … but they chose to dwell on other things.
Jesus was looking for a change of heart … but didn’t find it.
This passage can be a reminder to us to stay focused … to resist complacency … and to stay focused and respond to God’s grace and loving kindness.
Let us pray for one another that we may turn our hearts to God … see His mighty deeds among us … and recognize His gift of love to us.
